India won’t take Pulwama as it’s destiny: Swaraj


External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj Wednesday said she conveyed to several countries post Pulwama attack that India will not escalate the situation with Pakistan but if there is any other militant attack from that country, then it will not remain silent.

In an address at a think tank on Modi government’s foreign policy, she said Pakistan was worried that India would escalate the situation and she was contacted by a number of foreign ministers over it.

“I used to receive calls from foreign ministers who used to first condole the Pulwama attack, then express their solidarity and then they used to softly say that we think India will not escalate the situation,” she said.

“To which I used to reply that no, I assure you India will not escalate the situation but if there is any other militant attack then we will not remain silent as we cannot say Pulwama as our destiny,” she said.

Tensions between India and Pakistan escalated after Indian fighter jets bombed Jaish-e-Mohammed’s biggest training camp near Balakot deep inside Pakistan on February 26.

Pakistan retaliated the strike by attempting unsuccessfully to target Indian military installations. However, the IAF thwarted its plans.

The Indian strike on the JeM camp 12 days after the militant group claimed responsibility for a suicide attack on a CRPF convoy in Kashmir, killing 40 soldiers.
